The play My You deals with the issue of age, ideological, sexual and gender discrimination. Its protagonists are old women, some of them Partisans, some Communists, some lesbians, some mothers, but certainly women that in a time of liberal capitalism are forced to fight against a variety of male cultural norms and examples of ideological degradation of values for which these women have been fighting all their lives.
(…) The music in the play is the work of composer Đorđević, infused with various citations, paraphrases and references to popular songs. The director in the widest sense bases her work on the reading of the play as a demonstration of epic theatrical practices.
The play’s souvenir programme
The actor’s interplay is delicate, convincing and deeply expressive. … they create a dream-like presence bringing to life the characteristic style of the script … combining its narrative and dramatic aspect … thus braking the traditional confinement of an actor to a single character, which completes the consistent directorial vein of openness, stylisation, wonder, ultimately creating a very compelling stage experience.
